Music enthusiast who started playing at the age of 10. I started private guitar lessons and middle school band during the same year and it was the start to a lifelong, very intense passion. Almost as soon as I started playing I started writing and composing every style and genre that I could imagine. When I became comfortable enough with my writing I started teaching myself production so that I could capture the performance for friends, family, and internet strangers.

Ryan D. Review
"One of the best qualities I have noticed working with Ryan is the hard work that he puts into everything he does. He puts time and effort into being prepared. He always showed up prepared and knowing his stuff. Ryan knows music in and out and that seems to come from his love of music. I know that with those two things in mind he would be a great assest to anyone working with him in music. He also was able to put the technical points of music into relatable terms for someone newer to music and just learning. I think as a teacher of music he would be very valuable in helping others not only learn music but become passionate about it." Erik Langston wrote at Friday, Nov. 18th 2016
Ryan D. Reference by Stephen Knopp
"I have known Ryan as the pastor of a modern worship venue to which Ryan has been extremely committed for several years. I have observed Ryan's ability and willingness to learn and develop as a musician over several years. He is always willing and excited to learn new technology and software in order to advance the ability of everyone involved in the venue. As he has learned new skills, he has also turned around and taught newcomers with less experience so he has been developing others as a self-starter with very little direction from a supervisor. His loyalty and dependability have been very impressive, especially considering he was a high school student when he began playing in the band. Finally, his ability to relate to and develop relationships with several different artists over the years demonstrates his charisma, friendliness, and acceptance of different types of people."
